Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 12 minutes



  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


In a bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Stir in food coloring and vanilla extract.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until combined. Chill the dough for 2 hours.

Preheat your oven to 350ºF and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the powdered sugar, leaving about 2-inches apart on the cookie sheets.

Bake until cookies are puffed, about 10 minutes. Cool and serve.


If you like a chewy cookie, cook these for about 8-9 minutes.

Add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the dough to make these extra special.
